CT books victory in downwind pollution fight
A Bridgeport federal judge this week ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency must take action on a petition from Connecticut government officials challenging downwind pollution from a Pennsylvania power plant.
Connecticut filed a federal Clean Air Act petition in June 2016 asking the EPA to find that the Brunner Island plant -- located on the Susquehanna River south of the state capital in Harrisburg -- is emitting pollutants that worsen Connecticut's ozone standards, according to court records. Such a finding could require the plant to take actions to reduce that pollution, under the act. For more information click on above image.
